It's on us: The Stories of Public School Librarians

Many people don’t know what school librarians do and now is the time to tell them.

School library advocates are invited to make a pledge to the SLRI Kickstarter campaign opening March 10, 2017. The project will fund the production of a documentary that lets people know what school librarians do. The film can be used as an advocacy tool to spread the word about how librarians are impacting students and communities to support 21st century learning.

For more information, go to the It’s on us Kickstarter Project page.

In addition to making a pledge, please help SLRI spread the word. Post on FB, tweet and tell your friends.

Speaker(s): Deb Hoadley, Hoadley Consulting

The Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS), the Coalition of Library Advocates (COLA), and the RI Library Association (RILA) are joining forces again to present an interactive program on the role of library trustees in building strategic partnerships and the importance of community engagement. Participants will be led through some exercises to identify their level of community engagement and will discuss their partnership experiences, both successful and unsuccessful. This workshop is recommended for library trustees, library directors, and others interested in community engagement, outreach and advocacy.  Click here to register.

Upcoming Event: Financial Literacy @ Your Library Showcase

The Rhode Island Library Association's Financial Literacy Round Table (FLRT) is hoping you will save the date for an upcoming financial literacy resource fair -  Financial Literacy @ Your Library Showcase. The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for community financial partners (librarians,organizations, government agencies, etc.) to showcase financial literacy programs and/or information available to libraries across RI during Money Smart Week 2017 (April 22-29) and year-round.  The Financial Literacy Showcase will feature simultaneous tabletop presentations (poster or multimedia), allowing attendees to explore the showcase, ask questions of presenters and network with librarians and community partners at their own pace.  We look forward to seeing many of you at this event.  

For more information, please contact Lori DeCesare or Chris Wallace Goldstein at!
